The Aviation Historian Magazine

(4 Customer Reviews)   |     Write Review 4 issues per year Combining the permanence of a book with the diversity of a magazine, TAH is a boldly independent quarterly journal aimed at aviation’s “true believers” — anyone with a deep and abiding passion for the history of mankind’s quest to master the skies. If you want to take your interest to a new level, beyond the mainstream magazines available in the newsagents’ shops and online, TAH is for you. It will tell you things you never knew, and show you aircraft you have never seen. It will give you goosebumps; it will make you smile. It will expand your horizons and help you see the bigger picture of how flying has shaped and influenced humanity.

Brought to you by experienced former Aeroplane magazine principals Nick Stroud and Mick Oakey, TAH uses original source material — often little-known and previously unpublished — to explore aeronautical history from its beginnings to modern jets and the birth of spaceflight. It encompasses military and civil flying, the “golden era” between the World Wars, the Cold War, and many less familiar corners of the past.

Blending high-quality information, stunning archive photographs, uncluttered design and unrivalled graphics into a compact 132-pag

Issue Cover

The Aviation Historian Magazine  |  Issue 27  


We couldn’t let Concorde’s 50th anniversary go unmarked in this 27th quarterly edition of The Aviation Historian; and so — in typical TAH style — instead of trotting out the well-known history, we are looking at the rocky, decade-long political path that resulted in the Anglo-French project to create the Mach 2 transport icon. Another major article in the issue concerns the Hawker Typhoon: we all know it suffered problems with catastrophic structural failure of the tail, but the fix involved much more than just adding reinforcements to the rear-fuselage transport joint. Richard Seth-Smith, who lost his test-pilot father in one of the accidents, uses contemporary documents and a recently-rediscovered letter to reveal just how complex the investigation and the solution turned out to be. Elsewhere in TAH27 we explore Qantas’s WW2 Indian Ocean services using Catalina flying-boats; Vought F4U Corsairs with the Argentinian Navy; Egypt’s Hispano/Helwan HA-300 lightweight fighter of 1964; a bizarre French single-bladed rotary-wing experiment of the 1910s; newly-unearthed details of a wildly ambitious supersonic swing-wing (and swing-tail) jet fighter; the story of the deeply dodgy Bahamas World Airways; and the little-known Junkers K 47/A 48 fighter of the mid-1920s. Finally, we pay tribute to Richard T. Riding, TAH’s “Honorary Grandfather”, who died in January.

I'm a plane and a cold war enthusiast. I thought the images in the magazine were fantasic and the read was very interesting. It is something I will return to again I'm sure.
